Joshua Buatsi edges Craig Richards; Chantelle Cameron retains titles against Victoria Bustos

Joshua Buatsi edged closer to a world title shot after winning a unanimous points decision over Craig Richards

Buatsi (16-0, 13 KOs), 29, a bronze medalist at the 2016 Olympics,

"He gave me 12 hard rounds, maximum respect to him," Buatsi said.

Buatsi has been working hard at trainer Virgil Hunter's gym in Oakland, California,

"I want the world title next, we're ready now," Buatsi said.

Buatsi went into the fight No 3 with the WBA governing body,

Stunning display earlier this month earned him an upset, unanimous points win over the sport's top star,

Alvarez is considering either an autumn rematch with Bivol or a third meeting with Gennadiy Golovkin,

I would love to bring him to the O2 for a big fight against Joshua.

Richards, 32, from Crystal Palace, gave Bivol a competitive fight a year ago,

Buatsi was more explosive and successful at close range, as he was in a strong finish to the fourth round.
